Hope you are enjoying the Easter holidays. Today would be the first day proper of the Easter break, but at the moment that doesn’t feel exactly how it is. No matter. Some of you will want to take a break from school work, and some of you will fancy carrying on with your learning now that you’ve found your new normal. Either way is absolutely fine. Miss Gove and I will be checking our email periodically every few days, so if you have any issues, queries or just want to send us something to post on the class pages then please get in touch, we will get back to you.
Enjoy the break as much as you can and know we’ll be posting some more English and Maths lessons come the week starting April 20th.
All our very best
See you soon
Miss Gove & Mr Stuckey

You'll be pleased to know I am fighting fit and raring to go!
Here are a couple of ideas of how to focus your learning this week.
If you have a copy of the book, finish it, and if you don't, here's a link so that you can watch it. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6deqhc
The children could have a go at writing a book review, telling us what they thought about the story, the characters, what they particularly enjoyed or would change. They can tell us if they would recommend it to a friend and why. Would they read another story by David Walliams? What about trying another David Walliams story or comparing it to a Roald Dahl book.
Or could they imagine trying to become an MP like Mrs Crumb? What would their manifesto be, what would they like to change, what laws would they bring in and why? They could make a poster or leaflet with these on.
Any daily reading is, of course, beneficial.
This is a weeks worth of learning on fractions.
Don't forget that it is always beneficial to recap times tables and number bonds up to 20.
Here are a few websites which could help support the children's learning.
There is also Joe Wicks doing PE every morning, Myleene Klass doing music without an instrument and Carol Vorderman doing Maths every day on YouTube.
Please encourage your children to be as active as possible and remember the value of joining you in normal home routines like cooking, tidying up, doing the garden.....
Do not worry if you are unable to access any of these resources. Children continue to learn through play and joining in with you as you go about your day.
Take care of yourselves and each other. We miss you loads and will post regularly on this page. If you have any problems or queries, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will respond as quickly as I can.
A little extra help and advice for working online with children.
